Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai has once again teamed up with artist and woodworking expert Chris Schweizer to offer a Christmas ornament featuring Sakai’s signature creation — and his signature, too, if you’d like.
This is the third year that they’ve offered an ornament featuring the samurai rabbit in a seasonal pose — this time he’s also joined by Tomoe. While Sakai provided the artwork, Schweizer handcrafted each wooden piece. When he’s not drawing comics like The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton, Schweizer creates and sells wooden pieces and papercraft, like this Die Hard Christmas ornament, this collection of Santas from around the world and this Lord of the Rings chess set.
It’s available in a standard edition, a signed edition and a remarque edition. Here’s the description:
Schweizer Craft and Usagi Studios collaborate on their third UY Collectors’ ornament! Limited to 200, each wooden piece is individually crafted and watercolored by Chris Schweizer and embellished with a bead on a string for hanging. Available unsigned, signed, remarque, and a limited number of an Usagi & Tomoe remarque. Bead color may vary. Due to Mr. Sakai’s time constraints, items with signatures and Remarques will take longer. Please give us extra time to send out the signed & remarque ornaments.
Visit Sakai’s website to place your order.
